midicanal⎈About us - & our 11 years alongside the Midi Canal
This site, was created on the 5th of May 1999 by us (Malcolm Beeson Earwicker & Malcolm Reynard) to provide a guide for those wishing to holiday on, or near the Canal du Midi, in the Languedoc region of
It has been a lot work which we started when we were still running our small canal-side restaurant ("La Cascade"). It is now a hobby which we continue when we can, and when we have something to add, since we are both retired now and the site responsibilities have been handed over to Sysnix Consultants Ltd in Malta. It is a major resource for those visiting the area.
We hope that you will find the information contained herein helpful.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any comments, or, there is anything you would like to see included on the site, we're always looking for new ideas.
Please note that Malcolm Beeson, midicanal.com nor Peter Mottram operate any boats, people who advertise on this site do that, please contact them, we can pass on your questions but we can't answer them!
P.S. I dread to think how old the above photo is, it was taken in Béziers on the 22nd August somewhere between 1997 & 1999 at the Faubourg's annual liberation dinner/ spectacle/ son et lumière, where we can still be found each year, although the hair is considerably greyer now.
P.P.S. Some of the pages date from the last century as well and probably don't work very well with modern browsers or operating systems, if you find something that is absolute rubbish, we're very sorry, tell us the URI & we'll get it fixed, or at least we'll try, thanks.
